It’s playoff time for fall athletics!
It’s been a busy week for our fall athletic teams and although the weather wants to continue to present some challenges, our student-athletes and coaches persevere!
This past Monday, our Varsity Golf team won the District XI title for the fifth consecutive year. The nearest competitor finished 46 strokes behind! It was also a great day for our female golfers as Grace Sanborn was the individual female champion and Keeler Nichols finished as the runner-up. They both qualified to compete in the PIAA East Region Individual that will take place on Monday 10/15 at Golden Oaks Golf Club in Fleetwood. Griffin Lombardi has also qualified to compete in the event.
Our Varsity Girls’ Tennis team won a pair of impressive victories in the District XI team tournament. They defeated Salisbury in the quarterfinal round by a score of 5-0 and then followed that performance by beating Blue Mountain in the semi-finals by a score of 4-1. They will now take on Bethlehem Catholic in the District XI finals set to take place on Friday 10/12 at Lehigh University.
